    Im running on 19's with 235/35
    Its the original sport suspension.Not sure whether to go for a gentle drop yet, reckon it looks ok as it is.

    My Cam aint set up properley so doesnt really give you the true Colour, Once my Exhaust is on and Ive finished the Mesh then Ill post up some more.


    Im think I tidy little Boot spoiler???

    Yes exactly my thoughts, Not too much over the top just splits that Bulky Boot look with a lip spoiler dont it.

    Ill be completely honest mate, the ride aint much different.
    When I say much I mean yes you get more road noise but the tyres are fresh so I reckon it will quiet down. Dont get me wrong, Its not mega loud, just notice a difference thats all.
    Not bumpy at all, in fact it feels more locked to the road as I had the original 16s on with rubber dingys for tyres, felt too Boingy.

    I just love the stance of the B6, its amazing what a Kit does for a tranformation.

    Verrry nice, clean cut and looks a lot better than the Votex kit and the sport line.
    How much did it set you back and was it a straight forward fit.

    Post some piccies when the grills are fitted.

    I was originally going to go with the Votex but wanted to be different, I havnt yet seen one in the rieger, Dont get me wrong, Im still a fan of the Votex and Sline but he votex wouldnt suit my colour imo, Votex look great in Metallic and Sline in the Bright red look fantastic. I just wanted a kit that fills up the bottom half of the Car.

    I paid £700 all in, thats Whole Front Bumper, Side skirts, Rear lower spoiler and Roof Spoiler, Its from Actual Rieger in Munich Germany through a supplier.

    The fitting was abit of Ball ache, Me and my Bro started at 10am, finished at 7pm, Few too many tea breaks though and it got dark around 4ish so slowed us right down. Id say the pain was the Front Bumper, done my head in.

    Honestly? Really honestly................................?





























































    It looks fecking stunning!!! :hubbahubba:

    One of the best A4's I've seen for a good while. The 19" RSTT's look perfect, the stance is right, just lovely. Can't wait for the 100% finished pics'. What exhaust and tailpipes are you going for?

    You must be well chuffed with it!!

    BUB :beerchug:

    Yes well chuffed mate, The transformation is great.

    I was thinking of a Miltek but want to try and claw a little spending back so might go for a Powerflow, get rid of the cat and go for some suttle pipes.

    Ive started now and the bug has taken over....the mrs keeps adding her sly comments but I sometimes can be death!!!ha

    well my honest opinion is that the rear bumper is awful-looks like it should belong on a saxo or something, doesnt seem to have any class. but the front looks spot on mate!!!! just needs a little lip spoiler and a subtle dual exhaust to finish the rear off

    I did say Opinions so I dont mind any Negatives, Saxo/Class?lol,we'll agree to disagree on that one (before James come along to stir things up - ha), I had thoughts about the rear bumper myself but once my Exhaust is fitted and the Mesh is sorted, it'll look alot better (IMO) Ill be more than happy!!

    Thanks so far for the Opinions though.

    The lip Spoiler is on its way, Going to colour code the Spotlight covers aswell I think..

    I looks fine. I reckon some oval tails would look great in there. I think just some black honeycomb mesh front and rear is all that's needed. But as you've said it's your car............

    What engine is it?

    You know what would also set it off really well not that is doesn't already? Satin or chrome mirrors. As you have large wheels you would get away with it, it won't look OTT???

    I will have a mess on Photoshop for you

    I must admit it does look special, never too keen on red cars (bad experiences) but youve changed my opinion. I agree the stance is awesome on the B6 - looks ready to pounce. Well done

    Yeah very pleased so Far, just got to sort out the Exhaust and mesh for the rear then ill be more settled.The rear looks unfinished at the min and its doing my head in already!!

    definately going for chrome mirrors now, I was also thinking about having the spot lamp covers done in alloy silver?????? whats the opinions on that???

    The lip spoiler is on its way so should have all complete within couple weeks..

    The cat' is bolted to the turbo so not really a hard job but the A4 has closed loop lamba probes (upstream and downstream). If you remove the cat' it will make the dash light up like a Christmas tree.......

    The Yanks get by this with using special remap software but I doubt you'd be able to get a UK tuner to do this for you.

    Euro Code Tuning do a bolt in test pipe.......

    Sounds great but I wouldn't run without a cat' in the UK................ :busted_cop:

    Rieger makes some of the nicest Audi body kits. This one is very nice, especially in RED!
